Beer Recipes / Re: Help with Kolsch mash schedule
« on: May 16, 2011, 03:23:36 PM »
The only thing I can say is that I doubt you'll be able to do 3 infusions with water and hit your temperatures.  Have you done a step infusion like this before?  In my experience it takes significantly more boiling water to raise temp than the calculators say, after heat losses to the air, stirring, and god knows what.

It sounds like they're all generous people... I would just explain that you're going to run out of beer!  Limits benefit everyone.

Filling growlers without asking is over the line.  Period.  If you have extra, you'll offer; otherwise, no take out beer!

My natural weapon is my biting, sarcastic wit. That, and actual biting.

Hahaha.... hilarious.

What's up with you today, dude?

I was actually not being sarcastic.  Should have perhaps inserted a smiley?

You just seemed cranky. By the way, I'll be staggering around Fell's pt. sometime around memorial day weekend. Let me know if you want to grab a beer.

Yeah, I must need a beer  ;D

I'm always up for a beer as long as I'll be around at the time.  PM me when you get in.

It has the ring of a Jack Handey Deep Thought, too.

I always liked the bumper sticker:

My SUV Can Beat Up Your Hybrid

That's pretty funny.  "I buy lots of gas from terrorist states and have a small *****" just doesn't have the same laugh factor.

I think it does not leak when pumping water or CIP but it leaks with wort of 20 brix (while mashing).

What is your mash tun like?  You don't want to restrict a centrifugal pump on the input side... are you getting enough flow?

Or maybe it's just a piece of crap.

Don't need them, unless you're brewing a girlie beer.

You have strange ideas about "girlie beer".  My wife, a tiny thing, won't touch anything with fruits or spices.  Unless it's got at least 70 IBU, she's not interested.  Be careful when you stereotype.

No sugar means no Belgian beers or a lot of British beers.

I would bet that the majority of fruit beers are consumed by women or guys that act that way. :)

What do guys who act like real guys drink?  Miller Lite?

Perhaps some heat for the winter?

If you have a big air vent on the floor, you can walk over it and your skirt will blow up.

I've only been in front of the judge for speeding tickets, but they don't seem to even care.  Plead guilty, "Is your record clean?", "Yes Sir", probation before judgement, points suspended, fine + court costs.  It's like they're reading from a script.

However, my friend had his license suspended for not paying an out of state ticket (damn Ohio) and only found out after he was pulled over, arrested, and had to spend a night in central booking in the city.  I think he also ended up with nothing more than a fine, but he had to hire a lawyer who also made some money off of him.

Damn.  I looked at this on my phone earlier and they didn't look all that bad.  Now on a real screen I feel like I'm checking out a corpse.

How do you like your ribs?  Cremated!

I thought this was going to be about Pacquiao or at the very least someone who actually has a chance to land a punch on someone else.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Saison bottle conditioning?
« on: May 10, 2011, 08:34:37 AM »
Hey brewers,

I brewed & fermented my first Saison, kinda a trial run for something I always want available.  My ambient storage temp is 62 degrees, and so I maintained the needed fermentation temps (started at 70 & slowly moved to ~78) by placing the carboy into a trash can, surrounded with water heated by aquarium equipment.  Worked great, and it did need a full 4 weeks to finish.  With bottle conditioning, does anyone add a different yeast for the carbonation step?  I'm hoping the answer is no, but then do I need to also keep the bottles warm to get full carbonation within a time period of a month or two?   Wondering if anyone has experience on that.  Yeast is the WLP565.

Thanks y'all.

I'd suggest keeping any beer around 70 for the first couple weeks of bottle conditioning.  I don't think you have to do anything special with the Saison... that yeast should be able to eat through pure sucrose just fine.

Fins Raw Bar in Rehoboth is a cool place with great food (if you like seafood).  Definitely have some Evolution beer while you're on the Eastern Shore as well.

In DC there's RFD, ChurchKey, and the other usual suspects you'll find highly rated on Beer Advocate... they have good beer, but you're going to pay for it.  If you do come up to Baltimore, you have to hit Max's, which is up to something like 120 taps now and has reasonable prices for such great stuff. For brewpubs there's Brewer's Art and Pratt St. Ale House (although I'd avoid Pratt Street if there's a baseball game).

SE Pennsylvania has a bunch of microbreweries, with Victory, Troegs, Stoudts, Lancaster, Sly Fox, Yards, and others.
